Bing Maps Adds Transit Routing Directions engine
Bing Maps Adds Transit Directions [ bing.com]
Today Bing Maps added transit routing to its directions options. So, for those of you who like to take the bus, subway, or local rail you now can turn to Bing Maps.
In this initial release (i.e. more to come) of Bing Maps transit directions, Bing Maps will cover 11 cities: Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles, Minneapolis, New Jersey, New York City, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Seattle, Washington DC, and Vancouver.
really cool! I will check it out right now! ByronM
I expect this will be really nice on phones werty
Oh nice. They seem to be a bit more helpful than the google maps. I did a search from my house to the Sears tower (no longer called that) and it tells me to take the train: Subway: Take Blue Line - Forest Park - 13 min 12:31PMDepart: Western-O'Hare 12:43PMArrive: Jackson-Blue Previous stop is Monroe-Blue If you reach LaSalle, you've gone too far Compared to google: Blue Line - Direction: Forest Park Service run by Chicago Transit Authority 12:29pmDepart California-O'Hare 14 mins (9 stops) 12:43pmArrive Jackson-Blue I like how the bing maps tell what the previous and next stops are. Interesting how the maps gave me different starting stops. I wonder when they will add bike maps. Anyhow, I am glad this has come out. It is nice to have options. Thanks MSFT!
